  • The Sugar Act was created by the British in 1764. The Sugar Act was a tax that the colonists had to pay in order for the British to make more money after the Seven Years War. But the tax almost stopped the rum trade in New England.
  • Forming of the Sons of Liberty 1765
  • The Stamp Act meant the colonists had to pay taxes in order to protect themselves. But they thought it was unfait the amount they were paying. So the colonists protested and started what was called the Forming of the Sons of Liberty.
  • The Quartering Act was created to finish off the debt the British had. Since the war had left the British with a lot of debt, they decided it was important that the colonies should pay their share and let these men stay in America. This meant giving these men shelter and food.
  • The Sons of Liberty was a sercret political organization created to protest the taxes and laws the British passed. The group was first organized to stop the stamp act. The groups protests worked because later the British stopped the taxes.
